Poids Leger

Film

Time Out says

A charming looker and a promising boxer (not that those two go together all that harmoniously), Antoine mourns the loss of his parents and battles a nasty anger-management problem out of the ring, even after he meets the lovely and patient Su at her parents’ restaurant. Disappointingly, ‘Poids Léger’ hinges on its title character, whose wild yet soon predictable Jekyll-and-Hyde mood swings never really ring true; Améris also strains to evoke Antoine’s apparent namesake – Antoine Doinel of ‘The 400 Blows’ – with ample footage of the confused boy running, running, running.
